We had a wonderful time at the property!! We had a travel delay in getting to Palm Springs, but Dean (the property manager) was incredibly understanding and made every effort to accommodate an ever-changing arrival schedule. The house had everything we needed for our stay and very clean and comfortable. All the rooms were spacious, very well appointed and the kitchen was a dream! The patio and pool was a great area to relax and the hot tub was perfect evening retreat. Location of the home is smack dab in the middle of the Valley which made getting anywhere from Indio to Downtown Palm Springs a breeze. I very much recommend this property. It was a pleasure working with Mike, the owner, as well as Dean, and both were highly communicative and responsive. Thank you guys for a making our Thanksgiving weekend a memorable and enjoyable event!
Thanks for the wonderful review and for taking care of our home. We are always thrilled to hear our guests had a great stay!
I cannot emphasize enough how great our stay here was. I stayed here with my boyfriend, but this house can easily accommodate 8-10 people. It looks exactly like the photos- everything is clean and new. Fully stocked with everything you could possibly need from towels to trash bags and hair dryers. Water bottles were left next to every bedside like a hotel.
The hosts were truly great. Mike and his property manager, Dean, were quick to respond and overall very pleasant to work with. When we arrived on Friday night, Dean gave us a full tour and rundown of the property. He was super friendly and on call for the entire weekend for emergencies. Since we arrived late, Mike offered to let us stay and hang out (at no extra cost) past our checkout time. Beyond accommodating!
The house also has a bunch of user-friendly gadgets including: a remote control that operates the pool lights & jacuzzi, iPhone5 speakers, a fancy coffee maker and a Smart TV fully equipped with Netflix, Amazon, AppleTV, etc. The house doesn't have cable - but we certainly didn't mind, as we spent most of our time by the pool.
Hands down, the best AirBnB I've stayed at so far. We came to relax for 3 days - which is exactly what we did! We were sad to leave & will DEFINITELY be staying here again.
Veneto Condos was a great place to stay for our family of five (2 adults, three kiddos). The picture of the view simply does not do it justice. The view is truly amazing and clearly the best view in Playa Samara.
There were plenty of towels and AC worked great. We swam in the pool which was so nice after our long hikes. It was very clean and even saw the guy cleaning. The jets were not on when we went in, so I just asked one of the men working the grounds he he gladly turned them on - more fun for the kids.
You can walk to the beach in literally three minutes. It's close to everything you need and a $5 taxi ride if you really need it. We walked to Playa Camarillo and taxied back which was $10.
The kitchen was nice, had dishes, pans, toaster, etc. we needed to make our own breakfast. Other days we just ate out.
The place is VERY safe and we felt comfortable walking home at night - it was pitch dark around the condo, so be sure to have a flashlight or your cell flashlight. We heard monkeys at night, which was very cool :).
There's no TV which is (email hidden)d kids used the speakers to play their music.
Nick greeted us upon our arrival and also spoke with our driver to ensure he could find the place. It was nice to have Nick meet us there. He had the AC running, gave us a tour, and pointed out some good eats. He was available to us via phone (there's a phone for local calls in the condo) we even saw him scooting around. He called on our last day just to make sure we had a good stay. Thanks Nick, we sure did!
This is a great place to stay. We loved it!
Our stay at Mike's lovely place in samara , Costa Rica was an unreal experience. This condo is close to the beach and town! The place is clean, well maintained and comfortable. It was the perfect space for a beach vacation. It was easy to locate and the property management team on site were fantastic and helpful. This is definitely a great spot in samara and mike was great to deal with! Would go back!!
I can't imagine an easier or more ideal place to stay in Palm Desert. The house was impeccably clean, modern and just as described. The pool was fantastic and there were wonderful amenities indoors, as well as no clutter to speak of. There was plenty of space for five adults and three kids. The property manager met us as we arrived to show us around and was accessible all week. We would definitely stay here again.
We rented the house for July 4th weekend and everybody enjoyed it. The house is fantastic! There is EVERYTHING you need, (you forgot your deodorant and shampoo at home? You cut yourself and don't have a first aid kit ? Don't worry, Mike has everything for you ready there !!!). The house is exactly like the pictures. Looking forward to rent it again from you Mike !
We had a wonderful time! Beautiful place to stay! Very comfortable, and only a 5 minute walk away from the beach. The view is amazing! I don't think we could have picked a better place to stay. The staff were also wonderful, there's a guard to open and close the gate at all hours so it's very safe. The manager was wonderful and available at any time. Mike was also very prompt at answering any questions I had! Highly recommend!
This house is amazing & exactly like the pictures. Mike was incredibly responsive, and Dean, the on-site property manager took care of the check-in and was available for any questions or issues I had during my stay. (Only had one small issue with the gas accidentally getting shut off, but Dean came by and fixed it within the hour.) wonderful stay, would stay again in a heartbeat!
My friends and I stayed in Mike's awesome dessert pad over weekend 2 of Coachella 2014. We had an amazing time--it was almost hard for us to leave the pool and head over to the festival! The master suite was beautiful. My only recommendation would be to put some furniture out on the master balcony so guests can really enjoy the view. Overall, the place was perfect, and our interactions with Mike and his property manager (Dean) were very pleasant and professional. We hope to rent from Mike again soon!
Thanks of the suggestion Ashley. We will certainly be adding furniture to the master balcony in addition to several additional upgrades that include new landscaping, accent lighting and more. Thanks for staying hope to host you again!
